Hardik Pandya likely to be dropped from Indian team for T20 World Cup
The Indian T20 World Cup team was revealed a few weeks ago by the BCCI. The T20 World Cup was supposed to be held in India, but the threat of a third wave of COVID-19 compelled the BCCI to change the location.
During India's first IPL match, there was a massive increase in COVID-19 infections. This whole incident began then. It was found in a biosecure bubble, but it disturbed the whole IPL, causing widespread damage.
As a result, the whole IPL season has been postponed in perpetuity. The BCCI then made the decision to hold the second leg of the series outside of India's borders. After considerable discussion with the ICC, they ultimately adopted a similar strategy for the T20 World Cup.
Almost all teams have made their T20 World Cup roster announcements. Before the International competition ever began, India underwent a number of changes.
After the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli will stand aside as India's captain in the shortest format. Finally, there have been many alterations to Team India recently.
Hardik Pandya may be left out of India's World Cup team, according to a troubling report. On October 10, the International Criminal Court (ICC) will declare any remaining modifications.
Hardik Pandya, on the other hand, has had a fitness issue for the last two years. After his back surgery, he didn't look the same. In the last two years, the Mumbai Indians player has hardly bowled a handful of overs.
Although the IPL is in full swing, he still does not seem in shape. Coach Shane Bond of the Mumbai Indians provided an update on a player who missed the team's first two games. The five-time IPL winners' Hardik Pandya did play, though, in their most recent match.
In Shane's words, "We are certainly balancing the requirements of both our squad and the needs of team India. This franchise does one thing very well: it takes care of its players with an eye not just toward winning this tournament but also toward the World Cup that's just around the corner."
Hardik Pandya is quite likely to be left out of the T20 World Cup team. It is a result of his inability to bowl. A fast bowler or another all-rounder will most likely replace him in the team. Shardul Thakur is the most probable suspect.
Similarly, Ravi Shastri, who is about to turn 60, has announced his intention to stand away from his position. According to the BCCI rulebook, the Indian Head Coach cannot be older than 60 years. A replacement member has already being sought by the Indian board.
